Sustainable Building Operations


Course overview
Target audience

Once a building is constructed the owner is responsible for upkeep and maintenance – particularly its life safety features, or essential safety measures.

Learn about the equipment and systems used for HVAC-based fire and smoke control in buildings, as well as the legislated performance requirements for these systems. Find out what is necessary for maintenance to the requirements of State and Territory Legislation and the Australian Standard AS 1851-2012: Routine service of fire protection systems and equipment

Use that understanding to advise clients of what level of maintenance and performance testing is required by the Regulations and what the Standard specifies must be maintained, and how often.
